  • Introduction
    • Abstract: This Asia Policy roundtable grew out of the workshop "Contesting Visions of Regional Order in East Asia" convened in November 2017 in Singapore by the Regional Security Architecture Programme—a research unit of the Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS). This workshop focused on the very important and much discussed topic of the evolving East Asian regional order. It considered the various visions of this order and analyzed the responses from regional states.A common view within the academic and policy communities of East Asia is that the region is in a period of transition. While one could argue that this is a perennial feature of any regional order ... Read More

  • A Regional Perspective on the U.S. and Chinese Visions for East Asia
    • Abstract: The visions that great powers have for their neighborhood or regions farther afield are almost always about themselves—i.e., their role, power, and prestige in that neighborhood or region. The Monroe Doctrine was about fending off European encroachment into Latin America so that the United States could establish itself as the hegemon of the region. Xi Jinping's "China dream" is about internal rejuvenation, the consequence of which is a China that can stand tall in Asia. This essay examines how the United States and China view their respective roles and power in East Asia, how those views have changed over time, and what the implications are for the regional order. The Trump administration's perspective, I argue, is ... Read More

  • Chinese Visions of the Asian Political-Security Order
    • Abstract: Under President Xi Jinping's leadership, China has developed a newfound conviction to articulate and build its own vision of regional and international order. This conviction is often shrouded in the vagueness and ellipses that are the hallmarks of official Chinese discourse. Thus, in a 2015 speech, Foreign Minister Wang Yi managed to proclaim that China is preserving, building, and contributing to the international and regional order all at the same time.1 Yet even such a masterfully opaque statement does not obscure China's unique views and aspirations about the future world order.Chinese leaders have always chosen the United Nations as the platform for their grand proclamations about international order, as they ...

  • The Competing U.S. and Chinese Models for an East Asian Economic Order
    • Abstract: In the Asia-Pacific two competing approaches to economic cooperation have emerged: development regionalism and trade regionalism, each championed by a major regional power. China and the United States have both sought to impose rules and norms on East Asia through their regional economic agendas. In doing so, Sino-U.S. competition has primarily developed around setting standards through institution-building rather than through an arms race or a trade war.China, for its part, has pursued a development model. The launch of the Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) as a key financial institution used to bolster China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) challenges the U.S. preference for democracy and a ...

  • Contesting Visions of East Asia's Regional Economic Order: A Chinese
           Perspective
    • Abstract: Despite being the biggest country in Asia, China only within the last century has developed a sense of itself as a regional country. Historically, China considered itself the center of the world. It was not until the early twentieth century, after Western powers overwhelmingly defeated the Qing Dynasty and forced the country to open its markets, that the Chinese people began to observe the world from the perspective of a country located in East Asia. Since the government's economic reforms and opening in the 1980s, China has become a significant destination for trade and investment and a key link in the regional production network. In 2010, China surpassed Japan to become the world's second-largest economy.This ... Read More

  • The Role of Japan in Sustaining Regional Order in East Asia
    • Abstract: East Asia faces a diverse set of security challenges, both traditional and nontraditional. Countries have attempted to address these challenges through a variety of security measures, including alliances, political and security communities, and other frameworks for regional cooperation. These initiatives are often independent from each other but not mutually exclusive. It is important for countries to share a clear understanding of what the core element of the regional order is and to try to network their various endeavors in order to generate maximum synergy.Many in Japan view the U.S.-centered alliance network as the bedrock institution of the regional security structure in East Asia and believe that the ...

  • India's Vision of the East Asian Order
    • Abstract: Asia's importance in global politics has grown dramatically over the last decade. Though the United States remains the dominant unipolar power, the perception that it lacks either the capability or willingness to maintain order in the region has created new power dynamics. As a result of this perception of U.S. decline, the regional security environment is increasingly uncertain and competitive, and the potential for unresolved border disputes or sovereignty issues to escalate into conflicts cannot be underestimated.China's rise and the United States' seeming reluctance to balance it has raised the profile of India, especially among China's smaller neighbors to which India has become somewhat responsive. ...

  • A Pilot Fish Returns to School: Australia Explores New Approaches in East
           Asia's Evolving Regional Order
    • Abstract: East Asia's love of fish is well known. Fish are integral to the region's diet, culture, and strategic thought. South Koreans talk of their nation as a "shrimp among whales," while Singapore's military strategy is described as that of a "poisoned shrimp"—an unpalatable choice for the large and hungry.Australians also love their seafood. Many would recognize their nation's strategic approach in the behavior of the pilot fish. These small fish swim in the shadow of a much larger predator to gain protection. But after decades of utility for Australia, the merits of this approach are threatened. Canberra is now quietly exploring alternatives, seeking protection in a school or loosely coordinated group of similarly ... Read More

  • Locating ASEAN in East Asia's Regional Order
    • Abstract: Like other regions and the international order more broadly, East Asia is in flux. It benefits less than it used to from the U.S.-led liberal international order that was instituted in the immediate aftermath of World War II.1 Different conceptions, dynamics, and goals now dominate the regional order, posing direct consequences for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The power shifts and transitions inherent in these competing visions are singularly underpinned by China's rise and expansion into the East Asian geopolitical and geoeconomic space at a time when ASEAN itself—Southeast Asia's one and only regional organization—had just overcome five decades of trials and tribulations.Notwithstanding ...

  • Indonesia's Vision of Regional Order in East Asia amid U.S.-China Rivalry:
           Continuity and Change
    • Abstract: Indonesia's vision of the desirable order in Southeast Asia and the wider region has evolved over time, influenced by changes in both domestic politics and the external environment. Perceptions of external threats, national priorities, and the best means of promoting national interests have not remained constant. Nevertheless, Indonesia's "free and active" (bebas aktif) foreign policy that stresses nonalignment and strategic outlook that emphasizes the importance of national and regional resilience have provided important principles of continuity. First and foremost, Indonesia desires strategic autonomy for itself and the immediate environment in Southeast Asia, whereby regional states are masters of their own ... Read More

  • The Evolving Regional Order in East Asia: A View from Vietnam
    • Abstract: In recent years, East Asia has witnessed profound and daunting changes that have significantly transformed the regional order and created the highest level of uncertainty in the strategic environment since the end of the Cold War. In the current environment, both regional institutions and norms are being challenged. China has proposed or launched many initiatives that will have a significant impact on the regional order in East Asia, including the Belt and Road Initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, which is slated to fund various infrastructure projects across the region. The United States under President Donald Trump withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and appears to be ready to ... Read More

  • Japan's Return to Great Power Politics: Abe's Restoration
    • Abstract: This essay explains how Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is engineering a seismic shift in Japan's foreign policy from a postwar position of dependence and subordination in the U.S.-led order to a proactive and independent role, which in the uncertain regional environment is likely to gain increasing popular support.After more than 70 years of subordination in the U.S.-led world order, Japan is pulling free from its self-binding constraints and restoring an activist foreign policy not seen since 1945. Coming to power with a surge of conservative nationalist support in the Liberal Democratic Party, Abe has engineered Japan's return to great-power politics. He has achieved a historic reinterpretation of the constitution to ... Read More

  • Avoiding U.S.-China Competition Is Futile: Why the Best Option Is to
           Manage Strategic Rivalry
    • Abstract: This article argues that the structural drivers of U.S.-China competition are too deep to resolve through cooperative engagement and that policymakers must instead accept the reality of strategic rivalry and aim to manage it at a lower level of intensity.Rising tensions between China and the U.S. have spurred fears that the two countries could end up in conflict or recreate the Cold War. To avoid these outcomes, analysts have proposed ways to defuse competition and promote cooperation. However, because these arguments do not address the structural drivers underpinning U.S.-China competition, such proposals are unlikely to end the rivalry. Conflict is not inevitable, however, and aggressive strategies that ... Read More

  • Kazakhstan at a Crossroads
    • Abstract: This essay examines Kazakhstan's latest economic modernization campaign, highlights its shortcomings, and proposes how the West could assist the country's ruling elite in carrying out reforms to complement the modernization process.Kazakhstan seeks to undergo economic modernization, but its proposed reforms face a number of obstacles. Although Kazakhstan is the most developed and stable country in Central Asia, it remains to be seen whether the ruling elite will usher in an era of sustained economic development complemented by political reforms. The country stands to lose much if this effort fails. Over the course of the past generation, Kazakhstan has never made political liberalization a priority. Yet political ... Read More

  • The Elephant Looks around the Dragon
    • Abstract: The belief in India as an Asian leader and a model for other countries in the region has been deeply ingrained in Indian thinking for centuries. The 1947 Asian Relations Conference and the 1955 Afro-Asian Conference in Bandung—which served as the launching pad for the Non-Aligned Movement—advanced India's aspiration to emerge as the leader of formerly colonized nations. That hope, however, was never fulfilled. Instead, India remained bogged down in South Asian politics and security challenges, first from Pakistan and later from China. Slow economic growth also impeded India's efforts to play a greater role on the world stage and resulted in an inward orientation for more than four decades. In the early 1990s, the ... Read More

  • The Promise and Limits of Structural Explanations of Foreign Policy
    • Abstract: After the collapse of the Soviet Union cut India's strategic moorings in 1991, New Delhi looked for new anchors for its foreign policy. It found great success in the West, with its rapprochement with the United States and its accommodation into the international nuclear regime, but India's engagement of other Asian states—called the Look East policy—has seen mixed results. Frédéric Grare's new book, India Turns East: International Engagement and U.S.-China Rivalry, offers a framework in which the mixed results of the Look East policy are explained by the larger structural conditions of U.S. and Chinese power in the region.Grare documents the vast efforts of the Indian government and its national security leaders to ...

    • Abstract: The long arc of India's Look East policy has coincided with dramatic economic and strategic power shifts in Asia. Introduced in 1991 at the end of the Cold War, Look East is no longer just a policy instrument constructed to lift the country out of an immediate foreign and economic crisis. India's re-engagement eastward initially was focused on developing trade and investment opportunities and finding new strategic partners in Southeast Asia, but it has evolved into a multilayered approach that now reaches all the way to Australia. The Look East policy today is also intertwined with the big ideas of the United States on Asia—the concept of the Indo-Pacific and the erstwhile rebalance strategy to counter the rise of ...

  • Fair Winds, Heavy Burdens: The Limitations of India's Turn East
    • Abstract: Where many authors set out to magnify the importance of their subject matter, Frédéric Grare's India Turns East: International Engagement and U.S.-China Rivalry aims to define its limits. The book is a comprehensive look at the confluence of factors that have both driven and constrained India's efforts to regain its historic status as a player on the wider Asian strategic stage. It traces the shift from India as a "politically suspect, economically unimportant, and, at times, even militarily threatening" (p. 181) power in Southeast Asia, skeptical of ASEAN, aligned with the Soviet Union, and distant from the United States and its allies, to the current "unprecedented degree of goodwill [India] is receiving" (p. ...

  • Author's Response: From Isolation to Loneliness'
    • Abstract: India's foreign policy has experienced dramatic changes in the last three decades. As underlined by Aparna Pande, "the importance of India's relations with its Southeast Asian neighbors was recently on full display when all ten leaders of ASEAN were present as guests of honor at India's celebration of its 69th Republic Day on January 26, 2018." This would have been unthinkable 25 years ago. At the end of the Cold War, India was an isolated country in Asia. It no longer is. Yet reversing the trend of isolation took more than a patient rapprochement effort with each and every Asian country. The process followed an economic and strategic rationale that evolved over time under the dual influence of India's own economic ... Read More
